Humanity receives hundreds of cosmic signals on a daily basis. Of these, certainly the most complex come from a place simply known as Planet Nebula. Chief among the Nebular codebreakers here on Earth is the team of Heart & Soul. Their working methods combine the pioneering inter-planetary research of the eminent Dr. Blowfin, the study of subterranean, or underground, wave-form activity, a careful monitering of circle makers, as well as their previously established Solar Mist Approach.

The listener is guided through evolving imaginary landscapes where the gray area between synthesized sounds and their natural counterparts is explored. Electronic gestures and polyrhythms harmonize with field recordings of the bustling cities, temples and rainforests of Southeast Asia. Technology is not used to infringe upon ecological and cultural soundscapes, but accentuates their musical and ephemeral nature.

Descent is the continuation of Akumu's study of resonances and micro-sonics found in our everyday world. Based on field recordings captured within train stations, banks and other large buildings, these four pieces re-synthesize and reduce those grand structures into the infinitesimal -- the real into the abstract. The result is an imaginary "molecular soundtrack" for the residents and travelers of these spaces. Simultaneously part of, and yet isolated from their surroundings and other...

Akisakila urges you to cease boycott of the infinarium. Recorded in absolute quarantine 2008. Once the sweat of Santana's grope is absorbed into the fetal lounge, the pyramirror emerges from the implicate order of deep palmistry. Maximal hash flow leaks a mutant Nugent pube. Counterfeit error of names ushers in backdraft serenade and monsoon hurricane of herpal fallout. Perfect strangers. Twin cosmos. Montoyan/artesian connections. Spunk-free membrane fissures. Visualize the sweat. Fret is the...

Prophecy Sun recorded Sleep Fever in her living room, sampling her voice and clips of a fetal heartbeat taken from her belly. All songs were captured live over the span of three days, while she meditated over sounds, never left the house, ate everything in sight and slept zombie-like between recordings. The compositions focus on the voice as a symbol of the unconscious, capturing the immediacy of emotive textures and sounds that live inside her head. Her rhythms are of scattered daydreams,...

Mille Bayous is the latest offering from the collaborative team of Horvey, Goldschneider and Morton. Their work references free jazz traditions and mistakes, contemporary/experimental composition, and other modes of improvised and found music to create an actuelle-folk-electroacoustic sound. It is cute, patient, noisy, brash, cheeky, epic, and proficient. Mille Bayous is their first release, although some of their work has also appeared on two solo albums by Amy Horvey, as well as in numerous...

These three pieces, in conjunction with the "Dark Side of the Sun" album on Thankless Records, mark the culmination of an extended period of exploring field recordings and sample-based drone.

Prophecy Sun recorded this most recent collection of material almost entirely in her living room using an iPhone, with the exception of one track which was recorded while riding her bicycle. Each song was captured live in one take. The compositions focus on the voice as a symbol of the unconscious, capturing the immediacy of emotive textures and sounds that live inside her head. Her rhythms are of day dreams, future visions, and lost love serenades.

The Chimurenga Electroacoustic Ensemble take the concept of large ensembles synonymous with jazz, gamelan and numerous other world genres and apply it within an electroacoustic setting. The group explores timbral subtleties and the threshold of hearing, while experimenting with phonography, microtonal music, rhythmic folk ballads, and free jazz.

'Entropic' was recorded during a long period of dysphoria, dyspnea, and anxiety. These feelings are the canvas where the music begins, evolves, and come to an end. It is a soundtrack of days marking the closure, the relief, and the faith. It sets the end and the beginning. It is hated and loved at the same time. It is emotional music from the brink of darkness.

What are the Belgravian Blues? Knowing that the most punk people alive are probably your grandparents, because they made shit out of nothing during the dirty thirties. Knowing there is a psychic link between all of us (third eye shit).

A study of psychic fractals and attractors, this body of work is concentrated on fragmental stream of consciousness, memories as incomplete and distorted clusters of events and information, exploration on various levels of time perception, and conceptual elasticity. Experimentation with using oneself as bio-computer to produce composition of sounds as projection of automatic thought-geometry; attempting to follow intuition only. The contradiction is becoming part of the equation; balancing the...

A dreamy cowboy and cowgirl soundtrack, with an idiosyncratic live sound and a relentless delay pedal effect countered by an overbearing diatonicism that goes just far enough to push through to an epic 80s movie montage reference. Heartbreaking at times, and playfully silly at others, it is low-fidelity honesty. A white key preference that's all grit and stubborn prairie intention. Western Mourning is a one-time musical event in its entirety.

A departure from the typical multi-timbre, highly structured tracks of Blundespublik, this release is as minimal as he can get. Knobs are cranked and left to decay, sequences are nudged and left to bend their brethren, timbres are set in motion to attract and repel one another. The resulting work is distilled to its essential melodies and textures, without sacrificing density and depth. Perfect listening for walking alone at night.
